Stinky Breath Is a Sign of Dental Disease

A smelly mouth is one of the first signs of dental disease.  By the age of three years, over 80% of pets show signs of dental disease.  Signs include plaque, tartar, gingivitis, tooth decay and often much worse periodontal disease.  Regular dental hygiene is an important factor in maintaining your pet’s overall health and well being.  We are here to help you to maintain your pet’s oral health care so that they can enjoy pain-free meals, treats, and playtime activities.

This winter season, we are promoting dental health care with a 15% discount (up to $200) off dental procedures until March 31, 2020.  This program is super popular, and we encourage you to book early to avoid disappointment.  Give us a call at 416.537.3128 for a preliminary dental exam appointment with your veterinarian.

Periodontal Disease
Foul breath usually indicates an oral problem, and the sooner you have it treated by your veterinarian, the sooner you and your pet can smile proudly. Periodontal disease is an infection of the tissue surrounding the teeth that take hold in progressive stages. If plaque and tartar buildup continues unchecked, an infection can form around the root of the tooth. In the final stages of periodontal disease, the tissues surrounding the tooth are destroyed, the bone and tissue supporting the tooth erode, and the tooth becomes loose. It is a very painful process for your four-legged friend, but these problems can be averted before they even start.

Gently flip a lip. Take a peek inside if your dog or cat will allow you to do so.  Do you see red gums, and/or a build-up of tartar in their mouth? Do you smell a foul odour in there? If so, give us a call at 416.537.3128 to book a professional assessment of your pet’s dental care needs.

Dental care products

Each dental patient will receive a complimentary home-care kit filled with tasty treats to make home care easier for you.  During a follow-up appointment, a Registered Veterinary Technician will demonstrate how to care for your pet’s teeth at home. If deemed an appropriate diet for your pet, you may receive a complimentary bag of Hill’s T/D for tartar control. This is our most popular diet. It’s super tasty, and it works!

As we approach the holiday season, please note our holiday hours:

December 24: 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
December 25/26/27: Closed
December 31: 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
January 1 and 2: Closed

Please order your pet's prescriptions and pet foods early during the holiday season to avoid delays. We require one week's notice for prescription refills. Our front door is currently open for picking up pre-ordered food and medications only. If you prefer not to come inside, please call upon arrival and we will be happy to bring your order outside.

Our veterinarians are currently seeing all patients by appointment ONLY. We are currently operating with both curbside and in office appointments. We have limited capacity to accommodate indoor appointments but please let us know your preference at the time of booking and we will do our very best to accommodate your request. Please note, for safety reasons, you will be asked to wait behind a clear screen while speaking with the veterinarian. Your pet will be examined by the veterinarian while one of our assistants holds them. We appreciate your patience and understanding as these appointments take a little longer than normal.  

How do curbside / closed-door appointments work?
Please come to the back door for your appointment and call 416-537-3128 upon arrival. A veterinarian will speak with you over the phone and a veterinary assistant will come out to collect your pet for an examination. After examining your pet, the doctor will follow-up on the phone with their findings and recommendations. Thank you for entrusting us with the care of your pets. Please let us know in advance if they have any special needs.
How to collect food and prescription orders:
We can now allow up to 2 people inside the hospital to pick up prescriptions and food. Please call ahead at 416-537-3128.

For faster service, we suggest ordering pet supplies and food through our online store. Delivery is free with purchases over $100.00. It's easy! Just click ONLINE STORE on our website to sign up.

Payment Methods:
We are currently accepting all payment methods. However, credit or debit cards are preferred.


Thank you for your patience and understanding and we look forward to seeing you and your furry family members again!
